's important that we have the local law enforcement really at different points at the airport to protect not only the perimeter but also things that could happen through the security checkpoint. the other thing that's important, there are teams out there, they're called viper teams. and what they are, the tsa runs essentially detection and deterrent teams. i know in talking to director pistol, he wants to further idlize teams at airports to make -- utilize teams at airports to make sure the american people and public are safe when they go to our airports. i think that with the better coordination of local law enforcement should help tremendously. however, having said that, you really -- it's difficult to stop these types of attacks. anybody can show up, as we saw in the navy yard with the shotgun, in this case with the semiautomatic, and you know, it's like a shopping mall outside the perimeter almost an open shopping mall. it's difficult to protect. these viper teams, i think, with local law enforcement, can provide that needed security. we are going to be reviewing this along with the
republican nominee for president mitt romney was critical of president obama's handling of the law. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is he told people they could keep their insurance and that wasn't the truth. whether you like the model of obama care or not the fact the president sold it under a model is not true the. the only way he can rebuild credibility is work with republicans and democrats and rebuild a foundation. we got to have a president that can lead. right now he's not able to do so. >> as for the website government officials say healthercare.gov will go off line temporarily on a daily basis to fix its ongoing issues. >> robert gibbses i want to go back to something that was said before in the "the washington post." it's stunning that you have the biggest start up ever run by somebody that had never run a start up before or had business experience before. i mean, looking back, people are scratching their heads for years how did they make these mistakes. how did mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> i think that's a f
, for instance, have to get yeah or nay from the senate foreign relations committee. it's a quirk in the law. not the whole senate but the foreign relations committee. the senators, the two leading senators, chairman robert mendez-- a democrat-- and bob corker of tennessee-- the republican-- and many others, senator mccain who you saw interviewed this week, all believe that maliki's exacerbating his problems but alienating the sunnis. they do things like go into sunni neighborhoods and round up 500 young men in the name of fighting terrorism and one american official told them "you're making the same mistakes we made in iraq early on, we create more terrorists." they're concerned about allowing iranian overflights of material and weapons to assad's forces in syria and finally they are very concerned that any counterterrorism or weapons they give, maliki could use to repress his own people because they have cracked down on a lot of protesters. so the white house -- let me just say briefly-- sees all that but they are most concerned about this absolutely volatile situation along that border be
would be able to keep their plans. now, another component of the health care law is that people can now sign up a little bit later. they have a six-week extension on the deadline. originally they were supposed to sign up for health care if you weren't insured by february 15. now the deadline is march 31 but there is some confusion that goes along with that extension. health care insurance starts at the beginning of the month. if you sign up by the middle of the month, then you might not get the coverage until the next start of the month which means you would be breaking the law and then you would have some fines. so now when you file your taxes for next year, you don't need to fill out a waiver. a guidance just released just last night saying that you do not need to claim an extension. health and human services department saying the administration, quote, has determined that it would be unfair to require individuals in this situation to make penalty payments that would have been $95 per person to start in 2014. again, the new deadline is march 31. we'll give you an update in the next ha
